chapter 7:

"Oh shit." I said. There were so many messages. 21 to be exact, along with 38 texts.

"What? What is it?" Jasper asked anxiously.

"How long have I been here?" I asked him, trying to remember.

"About two and a half days. Why?"

"I have a lot of messages." I told him as I showed him my phone. He let out a low whistle.

"Who are they all from?"

"I can only think of one person, and if they are all from him, I don't think I want to listen to them." We sat in silence for a few minutes, just staring at the phone, me deliberating whether or not to listen to them, or just delete all of them, and Jasper, Jasper looked confused. "Guess I'll just get it over with." I mumbled to myself, but Jasper nodded in agreement. I decided to check the texts first, because they would be less painful.

There were various ones from Renee, my mom, Angela, my best friend, Mike, my stalker, who doesn't stop bugging me, and incessantly asks me to go out with him, even though I say no to him every time, and a few from Alice, wondering where I am, when we're going shopping, and such. Ugh, this was going to take a while to sort through.

I decided to check the ones from Renee first, she always worried too much, and if I didn't call her soon, she would probably file a 'missing Bella' report. There were 14 from her.

Bella, your father called me and told me you disappeared, where are you?

Bella, where are you?!

Bella?

BELLA!!!!!

Goddammit Bella, answer me!!!!

After that one, I decided it was best to answer her, the rest of them were probably the same anyway. I deleted all the ones for her, and started typing.

Mom, calm down, please. I'm ok. don't worry about me. I'm with Alice at her cousins house. I don't know how long I'll be here, but I'm safe. trust me.

After I finished that one, I moved on to Angela.

Hey bells hrd u wnt 2 texas. Wow. Bring me bac a key chain! lol.

I laughed at that. At least she wasn't worried about me, thankfully. I had all but forgotten that Jasper was still there with me, looking over my shoulder, until he laughed, probably from my text.

"Hey! Didn't anyone ever tell you not to read over peoples shoulders?!" I said in mock anger. He smiled, and my heart almost melted.

"Maybe..." he said, still smiling. "But I didn't listen to them."

We sat there, just staring at each other, about to kiss, when simultaneously, our stomachs growled. We both burst into laughter.

"How about I go get us some food?" Jasper asked. "While you finish dealing with your phone crisis?"

"Alright."

"I'll be back," He said smiling at me.

"You know where to find me," I tried to say nonchalantly, but my blush gave me away.

When he left, I silently cursed myself. Why must I give myself away like that?!


One half hour and 23 texts later, Jasper reappeared, bless him, with two plates of sandwiches, and a mouth full of food. I had to laugh at him, he just looked so cute. His cheeks were puffed out because of all the food in his mouth and his expression was a one of embarrassment and confusion. It was hard not to laugh, but I managed to get away with a giggle. I didn't know why he was confused, but at the moment, I didn't care. My eyes had zeroed in on the sandwiches, and I wouldn't be able to focus on anything else until I had something to eat.

I think that I had a scary face on, because Jasper suddenly looked scared, carefully walked towards me, set my plate on the floor in front of me, and practically ran to the bed to finish his food.

"Did I scare you?" I asked between bites of a turkey sub.

"N-no" He stuttered. "I was just afraid you were going to eat me before I could finish my food."

"Boys," I muttered. "Can't live with them,"

"But you definitely can't live without them." he finished.

"Touche."

We sat there silently for a few more minutes just eating, and avoiding the 21 messages that I had. I had contemplated on erasing all of them without listening to them, they were probably all from him anyway. Still, what if one of them was important, like, dad died in a car accident, come claim the body or something life- threatening like that? I wouldn't be able to live if something like that happened.

Just like he could read my mind, Jasper decided to jump in on my internal war.

"So are you gonna listen to the messages any time soon?"

"I-I don't really know at the moment."

"K."

"I should just get it over with though, shouldn't I?"

"Whatever you want to do."

We sat in silence for what seemed like forever, him laying on the bed, staring at the celing, and me, still sitting on the floor, ass hurting like hell, staring at my phone.

"FINE!" I screamed at it. Jasper jumped about two feet in the air at my sudden outburst, and I couldn't help but laugh at his embarrassment.

"What was that all about?" he asked. I crossed my arms and put on a pouty face.

"It was taunting me."

"Ahh. Talking to inanimate objects, the first sign that you're losing it."

"Haha, you're sooo funny." He got up from the bed.

"Thank you, thank you." he said, while bowing, and bowing, and bowing. I rolled my eyes, and picked up the phone, and called voicemail.

You have... 21 messages. It said. First message...

Bella, where the hell are you?! I came back to your house and you were gone. You'd better not be hiding from me, because when I find you, there will be hell to pay. (can you guess who that one was from? ;])

second message...

Isabella, if you do not call me soon, I will beat you so bad you won't be able to stand for a month. Call me back.

third message...

ISABELLA MARIE!!! CALL ME THIS INSTANT OR I WILL KILL YOU PERSONALLY!!!

*click*

Jasper shut my phone. I hadn't realised I was crying until just now, in fact I was sobbing. He pulled me into a hug and everything faded to black.
